Completely different
Anybody ever heard of Mark Foley? The media really went after him for being a gay man chasing after young boys. Ooops? I thought that wasn't possible.

It is possible but what you're not getting is that many true pedophiles do not have an adult sexual orientation at all. Once the children hit puberty, everything changes.

So why were the victims of the priests 95% boys? coincidence?

Because they have more access to boys. The mere fact they may have a preference for young boys does not show that they are not also attracted to young girls and it most certainly doesn't show that they are not attracted to adult women.

Instead, their sexual attractions focus on children – boys, girls, or children of both sexes."

"Another study showed that nearly half of the men convicted of sexually molesting boys were actually married at the time."
Interesting these "facts" are always from sites with a well-defined agenda.

Also, plenty of bisexuals marry, then come out later on.

I think you fail to understand human sexuality.

Using your logic, a heterosexual adult should be attracted to pre-pubescent children of the opposite sex.

okay pedophiles who are attracted to boys are gay
pedophiles who are attracted to girls are straight
homosexual means being attracted to the same sex. Therefore, when a man rapes a boy he is gay and a pedophile. WHen a man rapes a girl he is a straight pedophile. It's not hard to understand, but liberals make a big deal out of everything and have such thin skin. We are not attacking gays, we are attacking gay-pedophiles.

And to that person who made that huge rant, a religious biggot is someone who is prejudice against a religion, stop trying to act smart, you come off as a fool. And I wasn't "poking" you so dont poke me. I never said anything rude about atheists, just liberals, so you have the right to rebuttle about conservatives, but you are too imbecelic.

Now, that the whole pedophile thing is settled, can we get back on topic?

I am certainly not a liberal. At the same time, I think many of you fail to understand that before puberty, children of opposite sexes may have different anatomy, sure, but there is a distinct difference in the sexual attraction and whether the child is male or female is not nearly as relevant as in the case of a teenager or an adult.

Yes, because in order to be a pedophile you have to have an attraction to prepubescent children. In order to be a homosexual, you have to be attracted to members of the same sex. Here's an article for ya.

Pedophilia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the case of the priest molesting children who had reached puberty, he was a hebephile.

Hebephilia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And for priest that molest children who are in mid to late adolescence, they are described at ephebophiles.

Ephebophilia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So you see, a homosexual, does not fit into any of those categories. It seems to me that you use pedophilia as an excuse to bash and hate gays; before you start doing that, maybe you need to do a little research on the words you are using.
